More Stampin’ Up! Card Samples

Well I had intentions of posting every day new cards, starting with my Card Celebration Cards and then posting Christmas cards and gifts received that are hand stamped or made with Stampin' Up! products.  But life had other plans for us over the holidays.  Many of you know my Mom moved in with us this fall, she has ovarian cancer and we all felt it would be best if she was with us as she started her next round of Chemo.  She has been here almost two months and has enjoyed it very much. 

The day of my last posting she got up in the night to go to the bathroom and some medication she took made her a bit disorientated and she fell and broke her hip, she got her first ambulance ride to the hospital and had surgery the next day.  She has now moved to a rehabilitation center to get better so she can come home.  Hence Stampin' Up! has taken a back seat, but that is the most wonderful thing about my Stampin' Up! job is I have the flexibility so I can be at the hospital and take care of the necessary things while she is getting better. 

Now for what you have all been waiting for CARD SAMPLES!!!

The Card Celebration (formerly 10-10-15) is one of the most popular classes I hold.  There is always a waiting list for this event – so when I send out an invite, be sure to send your registration in ASAP before it fills up.  I am going to spend the next couple of days sharing some great card ideas that we made at my December Card Celebration.

I am pretty sure this was by far the favorite of the night.  Takeing the large flower in the Doodle This stamp set I stamped it in Basic Black on Pacific Point, highlighted with some white gel pen dots.  Cut out the flower and then roll each petal around a pencil and attach to the back side.  Run a large Rhinestone Brad through the center and you have this great 3D flower.

Here is another card made with the Doodle This stamp set, using the resist stamping technique.  You can see on the flower where the white highlights are… I stamped the flower first, then with a white crayon colored where I wanted the ink to not stay.  Duaber you ink on, then wipe it off with a tissue and you have this great effect.  Very easy but looks like you fussed.

What other job could your weekly tasks list read, stamp, create and play?  My dear Granddaughter Kitana when asked what does your Grandma do her reply was "play".  With a swing hanging in the middle of my stamp room for her to swing on when she comes it is kinda like a playground.  She has been stamping since she could hold a stamp in her hand and somewhat hit an ink pad.  That is the beauty of stamping – no matter you age - almost anyone can stamp. 

A few weeks ago I posted about doing some table settings for Conlin's Furniture store's Ladies Night Out!  It was a great deal of fun planning and stamping the table settings.  I wanted to share how they displayed them at the store.  I did a Birthday Party Theme and a Holiday Theme.
